On December 9, 2009, the Amana Farms Renewable Energy Center and Iowa State University Extension will be holding the education outreach program “On-Farm Anaerobic Digestion: Considering the Options”. The program will be held at the Iowa Artists Theatre Co. in the Amana Colonies, and it will be followed by a digester tour at the Renewable Energy Center.

The three hour program beginning at 9:00 a.m. will contain information on the Amana Farms beef manure digester including goals and objectives, design and installation, and the farm’s experiences; feasibility considerations for on-farm manure digesters; manure digester opportunities in Iowa; and digester methane production for carbon credits.

Following lunch on your own, tours of the Amana Farms digester will be available at the Renewable Energy Center. The registration fee is $25, and attendees should register on-site.  For more information please see
